The angels are rejoicing as one of their own has been called home. Maggie Mildred Rowsey Nichols, 98, departed from this earthly realm on Friday, August 7, 2020.

She was born on November 18, 1921 in Lexington, Va. Mildred was preceded in death by her husband Leonard Nichols and daughter Wanda Nichols.

She is survived by her children: Linda Foster (Bobby) Concord, Sammy Nichols of Rising Sun, MD; Charlie Nichols, Bedford, Larry Nichols, Sr (Clara Donna) Bedford, VA; Mark Nichols (Teresa) Madison Heights, VA.; grandchildren: Melissa Foster and Robert Foster both of Concord; Shelly Roberts ( her mother Shelia) of Alaska; Larry Nichols, Jr. (Brittany) of Lexington, VA and great granddaughter, Scarlet Nichols ( her mother Leslie) of Bedford.

The family would like to thank Teresa Haynes for her help in taking care of “mama”. We will be forever grateful. Also, to our wonderful Centra Bedford Hospice team, thank you for your unwavering care and devotion.
